Center for Land, Environment, and Natural Resources (CLEANR)
The Center for Land, Environment, and Natural Resources strives to make UC Irvine School of Law a nationally recognized site for scholarship, education, community outreach, and public engagement on environmental, natural resources, and land use law. Early in the planning of the Law School, UC Irvine identified environmental law as a core focus.
